Suggested Questions And Answer :

I am renting a condo with an old Weber Grill - 2 burner / LP (I think it is a Genesis Silver A ('00-01) model . I have very little gas pressure at the burner tubes. - Front tube flickers on/off with the front control turned on full; and - When the back tube is turned on there is not enough gas pressure in the manifold to keep the front tube burning. I have: 1) a full tank; 2) a working regulator; 3) cleaned out some sort of insect nest (spiders?) in the metal inlet tube between the regulator hose and the manifold. But still I have not improved the gas pressure at the tubes. I assume that: 1. There are nests in the manifold; and / or 2. Nest in front of the venturi nozzles in the burner tubes. Are these assumptions correct; and are the parts cleanable (they look reasonable rusted after 10 years); or should I just buy new burner tube kit and a new manifold kit?

Yes the best option for just for you is to buy a new burner,tube kit and a new manifold kit because all the things that you said you removed from the burner must have caused alot of rust on the burner and if you keep welding the burner there will still be linkage after awhile so the best thing is just for u replace the burner.

If the small hole is connected to the gray device (regulator) you attach to your tank this is the vent and you should not be ablee to detect gas coming from it. If this is the case your regulator is bad.

Two burners run too hot with yellow flame.

Hello,It sound like your back burners have a partial blockage or possibly are rusting or falling apart or have cracked seams. Remove the cooking grids and burner shields, and examine the burners closely. If you can't find a blockage inside (spider web, bugs nest, etc) then their condition is probably deteriorating. Let us know if you need more assistance.

The Front burner lights but only a small blue flame appears.

It sounds like it needs a good clean!

Middle burner looks ok but has huge yellow flame

Sounds to me like the new burner that was put on, has the wrong gas orifice in it. Possibly a nat gas orifice instead of a propane orifice. If it's a propane grill, take it to your local propane co and have them look at it. Also, sometimes just a spiderweb or dirt dobber nest in the burner's venturi tube can cause that kind of problem. Blow it out with an air compressor and see if that's the problem.

Can not adjust flame.

It sounds like the grill just needs a good cleaning, plus when you do clean it check that the burner tubes and orfaces are free of any debris. The orface is a tiny hole inside a small brass threaded insert where the gas blows through into the burner tubes, it is very critical that this is clear as well as the burner tubes.

Frost around regulator and hose

In most cases this is not a problem. If the burners are shut off and you still get this and it doesn't disapate in a few hours there is probably a leak you need have a professional look for. Under normal conditions the overpressure valve on the bottle will go off if the bottle is overfilled. This almost never happens anymore. Dealers are overcautious. What does cause this is high humidity and the JT affect. Your bottle if full and in the summer is at 150 psig plus. Your burners operate at inch ounces (read very very low pressure). Dropping pressure through your regulator causes serious cooling. This is how you process many gases into refined gases these days. Letting air out of a tire does the same thing. If the humidity is high you will get frost on the hoses and other areas the cool gas passes through. By taking this to some dealer and having him drain it you are getting screwed and wasting money. They also vent the excess gas to atmosphere which may be illegal and is definitely pollutting. I work in the propane biz.
